Section 1: Helpful Articles Starting the

CONVERSATION Before Your Loved One

NEEDS ASSISTANCE Discussing important aging issues with your loved one can be a difficult conversation to approach. According to a national survey, seniors and their adult children rarely discuss aging issues, and many suspect that this trend may even apply to spousal and other caregiver relationships. While we can’t predict the changes we will experience as we grow older, we do know that the most common changes are related to health, driving, living arrangements, the need for assistance, finances and end-of-life issues. Often, by talking about these important life issues early and planning ahead, families will find it easier to cope with the changes, crisis decision-making can be avoided, and personal control can be retained even in difficult situations. While the majority of those surveyed said they are comfortable discussing age-related issues, the reality is they seldom do. The main reason mentioned: No one is starting the conversation. In general, when a person reaches age 70, or their eldest child reaches age 40 – whichever comes first – it is time to start having conversations about aging and making plans for the future. So, how and where do you start? SETTING THE STAGE Research and planning are vital when preparing to start a conversation about aging. Before meeting, you may want to consider the following:

LIFE’s Vintage Guide • Starting the Conversation

• Be alert to natural opportunities to talk about aging issues and ask questions. This will help you gather information, little by little, that may be helpful in starting a full-fledged discussion later. • If someone you know has gone through an agerelated situation, ask them how they started their conversation. • Make a checklist of the topics you’d like to discuss. This will help you stay on track and keep you from getting overwhelmed. • Plan to involve others. Parents may want to talk with all their children together or adult children may want their siblings present. • Get on the same page. If you are going to involve multiple people in the conversation, it is a good idea to establish a common understanding of what needs to be discussed, who will lead the conversation and who will handle which tasks. • Decide when and where you will start the conversation. This is especially important if you are involving multiple people. Plan to meet in person, if possible. These subjects are more difficult to discuss over the phone. If a face-to-face meeting isn’t possible, be sure to set aside time to talk uninterrupted. Choose a time and place that is comfortable and relaxing. Avoid busy, highstress times like the holidays, if possible.

STARTING THE CONVERSATION Is there already a primary caregiver or someone who lives closest to the loved one, checks on them frequently or has access to financial accounts? If so, it may be appropriate for that person to lead the discussion since they already have a trusted role in the loved one’s life. Consider using this article as a stimulus for starting the conversation. For example, you might say, “I read this article, and it got me thinking about what you would want to do in the event of a major illness.” egin by asking them what they want.

Do they have a house key and know how to contact a family member? Living Arrangements and Long-Term Care It is important to discuss preventive measures that may help maintain your loved one’s independence, as well as plan for potential future care needs. Some topics to discuss and questions to ask include: Driving status. Should they get to a point where they are no longer able to drive safely, how would they prefer to handle this loss? Is public transit available? Would they need to move closer to services and assistance? For more on assessing and discussing driving status, see page 10. (918) 664-9000

eed for additional help.

Are they open to using in-home and community-based services? What can they afford? Financial Planning Ensuring that finances are in order can bring peace of mind to the entire family and provide resources when life changes occur.

End-of-Life Issues These are important issues for families to discuss before a medical crisis. When your loved one shares their wishes, it means things can be handled the way they prefer and the family won’t be left guessing about what to do.

Driving Abilities One area where your loved one may be reluctant to accept help is driving. Some drivers monitor themselves and gradually limit or stop driving when they feel that certain situations or driving in general is not safe. However, others fail to recognize declining abilities or resist hanging up the keys, fearing it will reduce their independence, socialization and ability to participate in familiar activities. Moreover, conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease may make it difficult for drivers to properly evaluate their driving. The 15 Warning Signs on page 32 can help you identify red flags of unsafe driving. Having someone casually ride along to observe driving habits firsthand may help you better judge your loved one’s driving abilities. Additionally, there are resources available to assess driving ability, including www.seniordriving.aaa.com. If you are still concerned and think a change needs to be made, talk about it candidly. Start the conversation sincerely caring for the person’s well-being and base it on specific incidents you have observed. During your conversation about driving, remember that putting a stop to driving may not be your only option. One size does not fit all, and, while ceasing driving may be the only answer in some cases, stopping too early can also impact a person’s overall well-being. Consider these options first: Taking a classroom or online refresher course such as the AARP Driver Safety Program. Making adjustments to the car to maximize driver safety, comfort and control of the vehicle. See Vehicle Adaptive Devices on page 177 and Driving Assessments and Resources on page 202 for more information. Exploring other modes of transportation that could prolong their independence. Options may include rides from family and friends, public transportation, paratransit services such as Tulsa Transit’s Lift Program, taxis and ridesharing services like Uber or Lyft, among others. For area options, see Transportation Resources on page 222. It may be helpful to accompany your loved one during initial trials of alternate forms of transportation.

COLLECTING IMPORTANT INFORMATION As you work your way through topics important to your family, document your loved one’s plans and wishes and collect documentation as you go. Giving up control of important paperwork, legal matters, finances and the like may be very uncomfortable for your loved one. The tips below can help soothe the situation, as well as help caregivers easily locate important documents, contacts and information during a crisis. At the same time, you’ll be relieved to have the necessary documentation stored in one easily accessible, secure location. Let your loved one have as much power as possible. llow your loved one to keep their documents A and maintain their current filing/storage system. Simply request that they allow the primary family caregiver or legal designee to make and store copies securely in a single location. espect their wishes about storing their personal R information. For instance, your loved one may be adamant about storing all documents in a secure location such as a safety deposit box instead of in a filing cabinet at home. Respect their peace of mind, and do not argue. nderstanding and compromise are key. If they U seem hesitant, ask them why and how you can help ease their mind. Conversations about important life issues may not be easy, but they are vital. They provide guidance for a family faced with sudden or difficult decisions. And they can help preserve independence, dignity and quality of life. Remember, most people want to have these conversations, they just don’t know where to begin.

LONG-TERM CARE? Long-term care consists of a variety of services and supports to meet health and personal care needs over an extended period of time. Most long-term care is non-skilled personal care assistance for performing Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as eating, bathing, dressing, grooming, using the toilet, moving and transferring (to or from a bed or chair).

WHO NEEDS LONG-TERM CARE?

Long-term care is needed when you have a chronic illness or disability, and you require assistance with ADLs. Your illness or disability could include a physical or cognitive impairment or issues with memory loss, confusion or disorientation such as Alzheimer’s disease. While most people who need long-term care are age 65 or older, a person can need long-term care services at any age. In fact, nearly 43% of those currently receiving long-term care are between the ages of 18 and 64. About 70% of people over age 65 will require some type of long-term care services during their later years.

COST OF LONG-TERM CARE

Long-term care is expensive. On average, an Oklahoma nursing home costs from $63,000 up to $72,000 per year, depending on the location and whether you have a private or semi-private/companion room. Care in an assisted living facility averages from $50,000 up to $60,000 per year. Average rates for home health aides for four hours range from $100 to $140. Adult day health is the least expensive long-term care option at an average cost of $70 a day. For more information on adult day health services, see the article on page 27 and the listing of providers on page 138.

WHO PAYS FOR LONG-TERM CARE?

Most people end up paying for most or all of their long-term care out of their own income and assets. Medicare does not cover the cost of long-term care, especially non-skilled assistance with ADLs, which is a major focus of nursing facilities. It will, however, cover

12

LIFE’s Vintage Guide to Housing & Services

the cost of skilled nursing services or recuperative care for a short period of time after a hospitalization. Medicaid is the joint federal and state program that pays for nursing home care for those who meet the financial and functional criteria. Other federal programs such as the Older Americans Act and Veterans Administration pay for some long-term care services, but only for limited populations and in specific circumstances. Most forms of employer-sponsored or private health insurance, including Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) or managed care, follow the same general rules as Medicare. They typically only cover skilled, short-term care as needed after a hospitalization. There are, however, an increasing number of private payment options that help cover the costs of long-term care services. These include long-term care insurance, trusts, annuities and reverse mortgages. It is important to understand the differences among the public programs and private financing options for long-term care services. Each public program and private financing source has its own rules for what services it covers, eligibility requirements, co-pays and premiums. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services developed the National Clearinghouse for Long-Term Care Information website to provide information and resources to help you and your family plan for future long-term care needs. The website has a variety of user-friendly tools, including a savings calculator, so that you can see what it might cost you if you needed long-term care and how much you’d have to begin saving today in order to have enough to pay for your own care needs. For more information, visit the website at www.longtermcare.gov. See pages 53, 55 and 57 for checklists to assess independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing communities. www.LIFEseniorservices.org


Skilled Nursing Care It’s important to remember that a nursing home or skilled nursing facility is a home – a home that also provides meals, healthcare services, personal care, recreation and other services for frail seniors and adults with disabilities who need daily assistance and care. Deciding which skilled nursing facility is best for a loved one can be stressful. Most families don’t know where to begin. The following information can help make this important decision less difficult.

Beginning Your Search for Skilled Nursing Care Talk with your loved one who will be living in the nursing home. What are their preferences? Including them as much as possible in the conversation and decision-making process is important and can help them better adjust to what is a necessary, but often difficult, change in their life. Talk with other family members. Ask for their help in finding and selecting a community. Sharing the information-gathering and decision-making with other family members can reduce stress and increase everyone’s comfort with the final decision. Ask people you trust like your family, friends, neighbors or clergy if they have had personal experience with nursing facilities. They may be able to recommend one to you. Ask your loved one’s doctor if they provide care at any local nursing facilities. If so, you might consider those locations they visit so your loved one doesn’t have to change doctors. Narrow your options down to three to six places to visit. If possible, take another family member or friend with you and use the Skilled Nursing Checklist on page 57 to help you remember which questions to ask and to use later for comparison. Remember to include the person who will be living in the nursing home in this process as much as possible. During your visit, be sure to talk casually with the staff (especially the nursing assistants, as they provide direct care), residents and their family members if you can. This will help you get a feel for the community’s culture. You should also ask to see the facility’s inspection notice from the State Health Department. This information is public record. For a more detailed checklist, visit www. medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare/checklist.pdf.

ompare the skilled nursing facilities on your C list using the Five-Star Quality Rating System at www.medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare. This quality system was created to help consumers, their families and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and help identify areas about which you may want to ask questions. Skilled nursing care ratings are taken from health inspection results, staffing data and quality measures. Use the Focus on Excellence Ratings System at www.oknursinghomeratings.com to view ratings for nine measures of quality and overall rankings for participating Oklahoma skilled nursing facilities. Remember, selecting a nursing home is not an irrevocable decision. You can always choose to move your loved one to another community if it doesn’t work out. Although moving is difficult, an extra move may be better than staying at a facility that isn’t right for your loved one. Family involvement doesn’t end when someone enters skilled nursing. The family simply takes on a new role: making sure others are providing good care and advocating on your loved one’s behalf. Skilled Nursing Care May Not Be Your Only Option Oklahoma’s Medicaid ADvantage program provides in-home and community-based services to qualifying individuals to help delay or avoid altogether the need for nursing home placement. For more information, see ADvantage Program 101 on page 31. Paying for Skilled Nursing Care Most people know nursing home care is expensive, but few realize how expensive. On average, a year in an Oklahoma skilled nursing care can cost more than $70,000 for a private room and as much as $91,000 in other parts of the country. Payment options for skilled home care include: Private Pay: About one-third of nursing home residents pay for their skilled nursing care out of their own personal income and savings. Of course, an extended stay in a facility can rapidly deplete one’s savings. On average, people exhaust their personal resources after only six months and must then turn to Medicaid for assistance. That’s why it’s

important to contact the Department of Human Services when a person is first admitted to the nursing home, even before you financially qualify for Medicaid. Getting correct Medicaid guidance early on helps families understand how to best use individual resources to pay for long-term care and how to protect as many assets as possible for the spouse remaining in the home (i.e., community spouse). ong-Term Care Insurance: This premium-based L private insurance can help cover the cost of skilled nursing and other long-term care. edicare: In certain situations, Medicare will pay M for short-term skilled nursing home care after a hospitalization. Medicare does not pay for longterm care services or personal care such as help with bathing or for general supervision, often called custodial care. eterans Administration: Some veterans may V be eligible for assistance with nursing home costs or care at a VA nursing home. For more information, contact the Veterans Administration at (800) 827-1000 or visit www.va.gov. Medicaid: Medicaid helps people pay for nursing home care once they have nearly exhausted their personal resources. To receive Medicaid benefits, the individual must meet nursing home level-ofcare guidelines and meet the program’s income and resource guidelines as outlined below. Medicaid recipients are expected to use their income to pay a share of the cost of the care (minus the cost of health insurance premiums and $50 a month for personal care expenses, and minus any income they are allowed to contribute to their spouse). Medicaid then pays the difference between the recipient’s share and the Medicaid-approved payment rate to the skilled nursing facility. 2021 Oklahoma Medicaid Qualifications To qualify for Medicaid, an Oklahoma resident must: Require nursing home level of care; Have an individual monthly income equal to or less than $2,382. Individuals with a monthly income of more than $2,382, but less than $5,462, may still be eligible through use of a Medicaid Income Pension Trust Fund.

Medicaid Spousal Impoverishment Guidelines It’s important to note that the spouse of a skilled nursing community resident is protected from impoverishment by federal law. The spousal impoverishment provisions help ensure that the community spouse still at home will have the money needed to pay for living expenses by protecting a certain amount of the couple’s resources and possibly a portion of the nursing home resident’s income. Resource Eligibility for Married Couples When a couple applies for Medicaid, an assessment is made of their resources or assets. The couple’s resources, regardless of ownership, are combined as the couple’s “countable resources.” The couple’s home, household goods, automobiles and burial funds are not included in calculating the couple’s combined or countable resources. Countable assets may include savings, checking accounts, certificates of deposit, trusts, stocks, bonds, mineral rights, other property and certain life insurance and burial policies. Additionally, there are strict regulations that govern the transfer of assets to family members or others and doing so can result in disqualification for Medicaid assistance. If the couple’s combined or countable resources are below $26,076, the community spouse retains the full amount. For assets above $26,076, the following division of assets guidelines apply. Division of Assets Guidelines Generally speaking, division of assets guidelines state that a maximum Protected Resource Amount (PRA) of $130,380 is subtracted from the couple’s combined countable resources and retained by the community spouse. If the couple had double that amount ($260,760) when one of them entered a facility, the remaining half of the assets, as well as any excess assets over $260,760, can then be spent on the couple and may be used to pay for the needed skilled nursing care until the resident qualifies for Medicaid. Spousal Income Protection The community spouse may retain up to $3,260 a month in income, which may include a portion of the nursing home resident’s income. The amount of income the community spouse may keep depends on the amount of income received by each person and the cost of monthly health insurance premiums. For more information on Medicaid coverage for skilled nursing care or to complete an application, contact the OKDHS office. See Information, Assistance and Referral on page 207 for contact information. For a skilled nursing evaluation checklist, see page 57. www.LIFEseniorservices.org


Hospitalizations and Planning for

Discharge

Hospital stays are stressful for families and caregivers – especially when the patient is a spouse or parent. As a family member, you are concerned about your loved one’s condition, often anxious about the treatment and unsure about what the future might hold. Planning for discharge is likely the last thing on your mind. In 2014, Oklahoma’s CARE Act (Caregiver Advise, Record, Enable Act) was passed. The CARE Act recognizes that families are a vital part of discharge planning and help ensure that the patient follows through with all physician orders. As a result of the CARE Act: • Th e family caregiver should be named and recognized by the hospital when a loved

one is admitted.

• The hospital is required to notify the caregiver regarding when their loved one is to be discharged and whether they will be discharged to return home or to another care facility. • The hospital is responsible for consulting with and training the caregiver for any medical tasks they may need to continue at home, such as medication management, injections, wound care and transfers.

At The Time Of Admission: • Be sure that you or another designated person is listed as your loved one’s caregiver and that the hospital has the caregiver’s phone number. • Present a current, signed HIPAA release to the hospital if one is not already on file. This will allow you to communicate with doctors and be in the loop regarding your loved one’s condition and treatment decisions. • I f there is a durable power of attorney for healthcare or an advance directive in place, bring those

documents and make sure they are noted in hospital records.

taken or discontinued. Get the name and phone number of who to call if you have questions later. • Ask if your loved one will need any durable medical equipment or supplies after discharge. This could include walkers, elevated toilet seats, shower chairs, etc. Find out who arranges this.

•B e sure the hospital has your loved one’s complete list

of medications and supplements, as well as the name of the primary care physician and preferred pharmacy.

During The Hospitalization • Introduce yourself to doctors and nurses. Keep a list of all who are involved in the care of your loved one and what role they play in caring. • Keep a notebook of all interactions and instructions given, as well as who gave them. • Ask to meet your loved one’s discharge planner. Make sure that you are kept in the circle of communication regarding health decisions and post-hospitalization plans. • Ask when your loved one will be discharged and where they will go. If they aren’t able to return home, make necessary decisions regarding which care facility to use.

Prior To Discharge • Ask for written discharge instructions (that you can read and understand) and a summary of current health status. Bring this information and complete drug list to any follow-up appointments. Ask about potential problems and symptoms to watch for after discharge. Write down the name and phone number of who to call if problems arise or you have questions. • Know about any new medications prescribed. Make sure you understand what they are for, how they should be taken, if there are any side effects and whether medications taken before the hospitalization should be

• Ask if your loved one is released to do the activities below. Circle the ones you think that your loved one will need help with and tell the staff. If there are things that you will not be able to help with, who should you call for assistance? • Bathing, dressing, using the bathroom, climbing stairs • Cooking, grocery shopping, house cleaning, paying bills • Getting to doctor appointments, picking up prescription drugs • Ask the staff to show you and your loved one any tasks that require special skills (changing bandages, proper use of a walker or cane, medication management, etc.) Make sure that you are comfortable with what you need to do to help your loved one. Write down the name and number of who to call if you need help. • Ask about support groups and resources that may be helpful to both you and your loved one. • Talk to the social worker if you have questions about what insurance will cover and what may be out-of-pocket expenses.

Post-Hospitalization • Pick up prescriptions as soon as possible. • Make follow-up appointments promptly. • Follow-up with the primary care physician and any other specialists included in the discharge plan. • Bring the discharge papers and the notebook you had in the hospital with you to all follow-up appointments.

Hopefully, these tips will be helpful for you and your family as you go through a health crisis and hospitalization. Having questions post-hospitalization is common. Know who you should call with any questions or concerns and don’t hesitate to call them if needed.

THE BASICS OF

MEDICARE Medicare is a Health Insurance Program for: People age 65 or older People under 65 who have certain disabilities People of all ages with end-stage renal disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or kidney transplant)

Skilled Nursing Coinsurance for 2021: The Medicare beneficiary pays: $0 coinsurance for the first 20 days $185.50 per day for days 21-100 All costs after 100 days

There are Four Parts to Medicare: Part A – Hospital Insurance Part B – Medical Insurance Part C – Medicare Advantage Plans Part D – Prescription Drug Coverage

When Can I Sign Up for Part A? Many people automatically get Part A. If you get benefits from Social Security or the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB), you automatically get Part A starting the first day of the month you turn 65. If you are under 65 and disabled, you automatically get Part A after you get disability benefits from Social Security or certain disability benefits from the RRB for 24 months. You will get your Medicare card in the mail about two months before your 65th birthday or your 25th month of disability.

Medicare Part A What is Medicare Part A? Medicare Part A is your hospital insurance. It helps cover your hospital inpatient care (including critical access hospitals and inpatient rehabilitation facilities) and inpatient stays in a skilled nursing facility (not custodial or long-term care). It also helps cover some hospice care services and some home healthcare services. You must meet certain conditions to receive these benefits. How Much Does Part A Cost? Most people don’t pay a monthly premium for Part A because they or a spouse paid Medicare taxes while working. If you (or your spouse) did not pay Medicare taxes while you worked and you are age 65 or older, you may be able to buy Part A. Hospital Deductible for 2021: The Medicare beneficiary pays: $1,484 deductible for a hospital stay of 1-60 days $371 per day for days 61-90 $742 per day for days 91-150 All costs after 150 days

(918) 664-9000

Some people need to sign up for Part A. If you aren’t getting Social Security or RRB benefits when you turn 65 (because you are still working, for instance), you should still sign up for Part A. You should contact Social Security three months before you turn 65. If you worked for a railroad, contact the RRB to sign up.

Medicare Part B What is Medicare Part B? Medicare Part B (medical insurance) is optional and helps cover medically necessary services like your doctor visits and outpatient care. It also covers some other medical services that Part A doesn’t cover such as some of the costs of physical, occupational and speech therapists, some home healthcare and preventive services. How Much Does Part B Cost? Part B Monthly Premium – The standard monthly premium for Medicare Part B enrollees will be $148.50 for 2021, an increase of $3.90 from $144.60 in 2020.

LIFE’s Vintage Guide to Housing & Services

17


Note: If you are not already getting benefits, you should call Social Security at (800) 772-1213 three months before your 65th birthday, even if you plan to continue working.

Part B Income-Related Adjustment – Since 2007, beneficiaries with higher incomes have paid higher Part B monthly premiums. Specifically, if a beneficiary’s modified adjusted gross income as reported on their IRS tax return from two years ago is above $88,000 ($176,000 filing jointly) the beneficiary is responsible for a larger portion of the cost of their coverage. These premium adjustments range from $59.40 to $356.40 more per month for Medicare Part B.

Some people need to sign up for Part B. If you didn’t sign up for Part B when you were first eligible at 65, you may be able to sign up during one of these times: G eneral Enrollment Period – Between January 1 and March 31 each year. Your coverage will begin on July 1. The cost of Part B will go up 10 percent for each full 12-month period you could have had Part B, but didn’t sign up for it. You may have to pay a late enrollment penalty as long as you have Part B, unless you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.

Part B Deductible and Co-Pays – The 2021 annual Part B deductible is $203. After you meet the deductible, you will pay 20 percent of the Medicare-approved amount for most Part B covered services. When Can I Sign Up for Part B? Many people automatically get Part B. If you get benefits from Social Security or the RRB, you automatically get Part B starting the first day of the month you turn 65. If you are under 65 and disabled, you automatically get Part B after receiving disability benefits for 24 months from Social Security or certain disability benefits from the RRB for 24 months. You will get your Medicare card in the mail about two months before your 65th birthday or your 25th month of disability. If you don’t want Part B, follow the instructions that come with the card and send the card back. If you keep the card, you keep Part B and will pay Part B premiums.

S pecial Enrollment Period – If you didn’t take Part B when you were first eligible because you or your spouse were working and you had group health coverage based on that work, you can sign up for Part B during a Special Enrollment Period. People who sign up for Part B during a Special Enrollment Period can do so without a penalty. You can sign up: • Any time you are still covered by the group health plan • During the eight months following the month when the group health plan coverage ends, or when the employment ends (whichever is first). continued

www.LIFEseniorservices.org


Medicare Part C What is Medicare Part C? Medicare Advantage Plans are part of the Medicare Program and are sometimes called Part C. These are health plan options that are approved by Medicare and offered by private companies. Medicare Advantage Plans provide all of your Part A and Part B coverage. This means they must cover at least all of the services that Original Medicare covers. They generally offer extra benefits and many include Medicare prescription drug coverage. The plan may have special rules that you need to follow such as seeing doctors that belong to the plan or going to certain hospitals for services. How Much Does Part C Cost? If you join a Medicare Advantage Plan, you still pay the Medicare Part B premium and you may also pay an additional premium for the Medicare Advantage Plan. Each Medicare Advantage Plan can charge different out-ofpocket costs. These are usually co-payments, but can also be coinsurance and deductibles. It’s important to call any plan before joining to find out the plan’s rules, what your costs will be and to make sure the plan meets your needs. When Can I Join, Switch or Drop a Medicare Advantage Plan? To join a Medicare Advantage Plan, you must have both Medicare Part A and Part B and live in the plan’s service area. You can join, switch or drop a Medicare Advantage Plan at these times: When you first become eligible for Medicare (three months before you turn 65 to three months after the month you turn 65). If you get Medicare due to a disability, you can join during the three months before to three months after your 25th month of disability. Between October 15 and December 7 each year. Your coverage will begin on January 1 of the following year. During the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period (OEP) from January 1 through March 31 annually, you have the option to make a one-time election to go to another Medicare Advantage plan or return to Original Medicare. If you use the OEP to make a change, you may also make a coordinating change to your Part D coverage.

insurance company or another company approved by Medicare. Once you choose a Medicare drug plan, you may join by completing a paper application, calling the plan or enrolling online. If you want Medicare drug coverage, you need to choose a plan that works with your health coverage. You can get your Medicare prescription drug coverage either through Medicare prescription drug plans, which add drug coverage to Original Medicare or through Medicare Advantage Plans that include Medicare prescription drug coverage. What if I Already Have Other Prescription Drug Coverage? If you have another source of drug coverage such as through an employer or union you should check with your current provider to determine how your coverage compares to Medicare Part D. Unless your other drug coverage is considered “creditable” coverage, meaning that it is at least as good as Medicare prescription drug coverage, it’s important for you to join a Medicare prescription drug plan when you are first eligible. Postponing enrollment may mean higher premiums due to a penalty that you will have to pay as long as you have Medicare prescription drug coverage. How Much Does Part D Cost? Most people will pay a monthly premium for Medicare prescription drug coverage. Additionally, you will pay a share of the cost of your prescriptions, including a deductible, co-payments and/or coinsurance. Your costs will vary depending on the drugs you use, the plan you choose and whether you go to a pharmacy in your plan’s network. If you have limited income and limited resources, Medicare Part D’s Extra Help or Low-Income Subsidy program can help you receive full or partial financial assistance to pay for premiums, deductibles and co-payments.

What is Medicare Part D? Medicare offers outpatient prescription drug coverage (Medicare Part D) for everyone with Medicare. To get Medicare drug coverage, you must join a plan run by an

When Can I Join, Switch or Drop a Medicare Part D Plan? You can join, switch or drop a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan at these times: When you first become eligible for Medicare. Between October 15 and December 7 each year. Your coverage will begin on January 1 of the following year. In certain situations, including the involuntary loss of your creditable prescription drug coverage, you may get a Special Enrollment Period. You can sign up for Part D and won’t have to pay a late enrollment penalty as long as you join a Medicare drug plan within 63 days of losing your creditable coverage. continued

If you are eligible for and receive the extra financial help for Part D costs, you are entitled to Special Enrollment Periods during which you can change your Medicare drug plan. Note: Between January 1 and March 31 each year, you can join a Part D plan if, during this period, you disenrolled from a Medicare Advantage Plan and returned to Original Medicare. Your coverage will begin the first of the month after the plan receives the enrollment form. How Do I Qualify for the Extra Help? You automatically qualify for the Medicare Part D extra financial help if you have Medicare and Medicaid, Medicare and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) without Medicaid, or if the state helps pay your Medicare premiums. If you don’t automatically qualify, you may qualify for the Extra Help if you meet certain income and resource guidelines that may change each year. For 2021, the income limit for a single person is $1,630 in monthly

income and $14,790 in assets. The amount for a married couple is $2,198 in joint monthly income and $29,520 in joint assets.

10 TIPS FOR

HEALTHY AGING 1.

3.

LIVE AN ACTIVE LIFE Regular exercise is one of the greatest keys to physical and mental well-being. Some type of physical activity may prevent or even provide relief from many common chronic conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, depression and arthritis.

MAINTAIN YOUR BRAIN One in 10 older adults aged 65+ in the U.S. has Alzheimer’s disease. Studies have shown that cognitive stimulation through active learning slows cognitive decline.

TIPS: Consult your doctor and get moving! Do something you will enjoy. Try to incorporate aerobic, balance and muscle strengthening activities into your routine. Consider joining LIFE’s Senior Centers to take advantage of dance and exercise classes. See Senior Center listings on page 174.

2. .

EAT HEALTHY FOODS The majority of adults in the U.S. consume more than double the recommended daily allowance of sodium, which can contribute to hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Most of this high sodium intake comes from pre-packaged foods and restaurants. TIPS: Eat nutrient-dense foods like fruits, vegetables and whole-grain foods. Avoid sweet, salty and highly processed foods. Each person is unique, so follow your doctor’s suggestions regarding dietary restrictions. (918) 664-9000

5.

TIPS: Never stop learning and challenging your mind. Learn a new language, attend lectures at a local university, master a musical instrument or read a book. Puzzles and games also engage your brain. Find other game players at a nearby senior center. See Senior Center listings page 174.

GET ENOUGH SLEEP Humans can go longer without food than without sleep. Older adults need seven to nine hours per night. Chronic health conditions make adequate sleep even more vital. Lack of sleep can cause depression, irritability, increased fall risk and memory problems. TIPS: Develop a regular bedtime routine. Keep your bedroom dark and quiet – avoid watching television or surfing the internet in bed and stay away from caffeine late in the day. Physical activity can improve the quality of your sleep, but don’t exercise right before bedtime.

4.

6.

CULTIVATE YOUR RELATIONSHIPS Common life changes in older adulthood, such as retirement, health issues or the loss of a spouse may lead to social isolation.

REDUCE STRESS As we age, our stressors change as does our ability to deal with stress. Stress causes or complicates more than 90% of illnesses. Stress may also cause depression, memory loss, fatigue and decreased ability to fight off and recover from infection.

TIPS: Maintain communication with your family and friends, especially after a significant loss or life change. LIFE’s Senior Centers are a great place to make new friends and stay engaged. See ad on page 175.

TIPS: Take care of yourself when you feel stressed by getting enough sleep, exercising and eating nutritious foods. Talk to someone about your stress, and try some relaxation techniques, such as circular breathing, yoga or meditation.

7. PRACTICE PREVENTION Many accidents, illnesses and common geriatric health conditions, such as falls, chronic illness, depression and frailty, are often preventable. TIPS: Get a yearly flu vaccine, and wash your hands after using the restroom and before handling food. To prevent a fall, complete a home safety checklist, use assistive devices, wear appropriate footwear, get your vision checked, take vitamin D and calcium and get some form of exercise. Tai Chi can improve balance and help prevent falls.

8. TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR HEALTH Lifestyle choices affect most health issues. Regular visits to your primary care physician, specialists, dentist and eye doctor help identify any problems in their early stages. The more patients actively participate in their own healthcare decisions, the more satisfied they tend to be with the care they receive. TIPS: Contact your primary care practitioner for an annual physical or whenever you have a concern about your health. Go to those appointments prepared. Bring a list of your current prescription and non-prescription medications; write down your health concerns; and, most importantly, ask questions.

9. MAKE COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS Older adults who engage in meaningful community activities like volunteer work report feeling healthier and less depressed. TIPS: Share your knowledge and life skills through volunteering, traveling with friends or family, joining a book club or playing a game at your local senior center. See page 228 for volunteer opportunities at LIFE Senior Services and other area agencies.

10. COMPLETE YOUR ADVANCE DIRECTIVE The Patient Self-Determination Act gives you the right to participate in your own healthcare decisions, but you may not always be able to do so. By completing an advance directive, you can outline your health preferences and appoint somebody to make decisions should you become incapacitated.

THE POSITIVE SIDE OF AGING Some studies show older adults report higher levels of happiness than people in their 20s and 30s, despite the challenges of aging. Here is a sampling of some of the reasons seniors report that getting older has its perks. 1. Lots of Know-How – We become good at using what we’ve learned. Accumulated knowledge gets better in our 60s and 70s. 2. Mr. Nice Guy or Gal – We become more agreeable. We’re happier and less inclined to get angry. One theory is that older adults have focused their social networks on available social partners that satisfy their emotional needs. 3. Self-Confidence – Self-esteem soars as we age, studies show. Younger people are often more insecure and struggle in their 20s and 30s. As we age such things as employment, financial stability, education, good health and increased physical activity can enhance our well-being even more. 4. Less Stress – According to the American Psychological Association (APA), baby boomers and older adults report less stress than their younger counterparts. Stress doesn’t go away entirely, but the APA says, nine out of 10 older adults report doing enough to manage it. 5. Better Intimacy – We may have sex less often, but researchers have found sexual satisfaction improves with age. Women over 80 were more likely than those between 55 and 79 to report being satisfied due to less anxiety about body image. Seniors are more comfortable in their own skin and able to communicate their needs more easily. 6. A Taste for Life – As we age, medications and illness can sometimes change our sense of smell and taste. However, people over 50 report experimenting with new recipes and spices and enjoying food more as a result.

Get care from a home health agency that contracts with your plan (in-network).

Request prior authorization or a referral before receiving home healthcare.

MEDICARE AND HOME HEALTHCARE Most Medicare beneficiaries are surprised to learn that Medicare does not routinely pay for longterm custodial care expenses such as assisted living, nursing home care or full-time home health assistance. There are, however, certain circumstances where Medicare will cover these expenses. MEDICARE-COVERED SKILLED NURSING FACILITIES

For Medicare to cover skilled nursing facilities, you must first spend three medically necessary inpatient days in the hospital for a related illness or injury. Upon release from the hospital, your doctor must certify that inpatient skilled nursing care is necessary to maintain or improve your current condition and prescribe daily skilled care (such as intravenous fluids or physical therapy) which is not practical to receive in your home. Under Original Medicare, you pay nothing for skilled nursing care for the first 20 days of each benefit period. For days 21-100, you would be responsible for a coinsurance amount per day. After day 100,

26

Medicare pays nothing and you are fully responsible for all costs. If you have an Advantage Medicare Plan, sometimes the three-day hospital stay is not required. Check with your plan for their specific coverage details. HOME HEALTH SERVICES UNDER ORIGINAL MEDICARE

Original Medicare will cover home health services under Part A and/or Part B. Medicare covers medicallynecessary part-time or intermittent skilled nursing care, and/or physical therapy, speech-language pathology services or continued occupational therapy. A doctor or other healthcare provider must see you face-toface before certifying that you are homebound and need home health services. A doctor or other provider must order your care, and a Medicare-certified home health agency must provide it. Home health services may also include social services, part-time or intermittent home health aide services, durable medical equipment

LIFE’s Vintage Guide to Housing & Services

and medical supplies for use at home. Medicare will only pay for a home health aide if you need skilled nursing or therapy services. You pay nothing for covered home health services. However, for Medicare-covered durable medical equipment, you must pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount. The Part B deductible applies. If you have additional questions about coverage details under Original Medicare, visit www.Medicare.gov or call (800) 633-4227 toll-free. HOME HEALTH SERVICES AND MEDICARE ADVANTAGE PLANS

All Medicare Advantage Plans must provide at least the same level of home healthcare coverage as Original Medicare, but they may impose different rules, restrictions and costs. Depending on your specific plan, you may need to: • Get care from a home health agency that contracts with your plan (in-network). • Request prior authorization or a referral before receiving home healthcare. • Pay a copayment for your care (Original Medicare fully covers home health). If you need information about the costs and coverage rules for home healthcare, contact your Medicare Advantage Plan. www.LIFEseniorservices.org


ADULT DAY HEALTH SERVICES:

Person-Centered Daytime Care for Older Adults More than 53 million Americans are caregivers to someone who is ill, disabled or aged, according to the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP. Most family caregivers perform a daily juggling act as they balance caregiving with their other responsibilities. As more families find themselves caring for an older adult – whether it be a spouse, parent, other relative or even a friend – many are discovering the important role that adult day health services can play in helping them manage their caregiving responsibilities. Adult day health centers offer a coordinated program of professional and compassionate services for adults in a community-based group setting. Programs are designed to provide health and social services to adults who need supervised care in a safe place outside the home during the day. They also provide respite for caregivers, giving them a much-needed break, allowing them to attend to personal needs, run errands, rest and relax, or continue working. A well-run adult day health program focuses on enriching participants’ lives by building on their individual interests, abilities and strengths. Most provide a full array of health support services, including health monitoring, medication management and sometimes even physical, speech and occupational therapies. Personal care services such as assisted showers, hair and foot care, and incontinence care are also available. They frequently offer specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Some even provide or facilitate transportation to and from the center each day. A typical day at most adult day health centers includes lively conversation and reminiscing, exercise and fitness activities, arts and crafts, music, games, cooking, gardening, woodworking and tinkering, in a safe and stimulating daytime home-away-from-home environment. The socialization, friendships and meaningful activities give many participants a new lease on life and something to look forward to each day. Adult day health programs are also an affordable alternative to in-home care, enabling families to access a full range of services for a fraction of the cost. Additionally, many centers offer financial assistance through various private and government programs. (918) 664-9000

How Do You Know if the Time is Right for Adult Day Health Services? The questions below will help you determine if an adult day health program is the right choice for you and your loved one. If you answer “yes” to even one question, you may want to start considering adult day health services as an option. 1. Has your loved one recently been discharged from a hospital or skilled rehabilitation center? 2. Are you worried about their safety when you aren’t around? 3. Are you concerned about leaving your loved one alone while you work or run errands? 4. Has there been an incident or problem when your loved one was unsupervised? 5. Do you find yourself taking time off from work to care for them? 6. Would you feel better if you knew they were eating nutritious meals, getting exercise and assistance, and enjoying social activities during the day? 7. Does your loved one forget to take medications or have care needs that they cannot manage alone? 8. Has your relationship with your loved one become strained because of the demands of caregiving? Do you feel like you are spending too much time with each other? 9. Are they isolated from friends and activities they once enjoyed? 10. Would you like help caring for your loved one? As a caregiver, it’s vitally important to care for yourself so that you can effectively (and happily) care for someone else.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) can be an invaluable financial resource to veterans and their families needing assistance with healthcare costs. However, confirming eligibility and applying for VA healthcare benefits can get complicated.

AM I ELIGIBLE? If you participated in active military service and were separated under any condition other than dishonorable, you may qualify for VA healthcare benefits. Current and former members of the reserves or National Guard who were called to active duty by a federal order and completed the full period for which they were called or ordered to active duty may be eligible for benefits as well.

MINIMUM DUTY REQUIREMENTS Most veterans who enlisted after September 7, 1980, or entered active duty after October 16, 1981, must have served 24 continuous months or the full period for which they were called to active duty in order to be eligible. This minimum duty requirement may not apply to veterans who were discharged for a disability incurred or aggravated in the line of duty, for a hardship or “early out” or those who served prior to September 7, 1980. Since there are a number of other exceptions to the minimum duty requirements, the VA encourages all veterans to apply so that they may determine enrollment eligibility.

WHAT SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE? For Americans who received an honorable or general discharge, there are two major benefit programs:

28

LIFE’s Vintage Guide to Housing & Services

• Free or low-cost medical care through VA hospitals and medical facilities. o The VA is required by law to provide eligible veterans with hospital care and outpatient care services that are defined as “needed.” The VA defines “needed” as care or services that will promote, preserve and restore health. This includes treatment, procedures, supplies and prescriptions. • Veterans and survivors eligible for a VA pension may receive additional money if special care is needed. o The Aid & Attendance (A&A) and Housebound Allowance can provide additional income to help pay for a variety of care options. See the next page for additional details. www.LIFEseniorservices.org


HOW DO I APPLY? Apply Online

• Applying for VA benefits is free. Visit www.vets.gov to complete an online application. • Complete VA Form 10-10EZ to apply for VA healthcare benefits. (To apply for Aid & Attendance, complete form 21-527EZ for a veteran or 21-534EZ for a spouse.) • Confirmation of your enrollment application will be emailed to you, usually within five to seven business days. Apply in Person

• You can complete form 10-10EZ in person at your local VA healthcare facility or VA regional office. • For Aid & Attendance, you will need to provide documentation of medical need such as a doctor’s report or VA Form 21-2680. • Generally, you will receive written notification of your enrollment status in the VA healthcare system within five to seven business days. Apply by Telephone

• Call (877) 222-8387, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. • Complete the application over the phone with a VA representative. • You will typically receive a copy of your completed VA Form 10-10EZ within three to five business days. Review, sign and return to Health Eligibility Center, 2957 Clairmont Road, Suite 200, Atlanta, GA 30329. For Help Applying

• Call (800) 827-1000 toll-free for the VA Benefits Hotline. If you already have a VA pension and need to add Aid & Attendance, call (877) 294-6380. • Veterans may also use a VA-accredited attorney, claims agent or Veterans Service Office to help them through the process.

See Veteran Services on page 227 for contact information for local, regional and national veteran-related organizations. (918) 664-9000

The Aid & Attendance (A&A) pension add-on can provide veterans, their families, or a surviving spouse a valuable financial resource if the regular attendance of another person is needed to help with activities of daily living such as eating, bathing, dressing, personal hygiene and ambulation. A&A can be used to help pay for treatment and care if the recipient is living at home, in a residential care facility, assisted living facility or is receiving hospice services. Veterans who fail to qualify for A&A may be eligible for a Housebound Pension Allowance. Though smaller than A&A, the Housebound monthly pension add-on is for veterans who are substantially confined to their home because of permanent disability or blindness and need help with caregiving. The VA will not pay both A&A and Housebound Allowance benefits at the same time. Veteran eligibility for A&A is based on service and financial status. The veteran must have been honorably discharged after at least 90 days of service with at least one day during a wartime period. Minimum age is 65 unless officially disabled. Financial eligibility is based on income and total assets (primary residence and car are excluded from assets). In 2021, the maximum income and asset limit for eligibility is $130,773. In a new rule effective in 2019, the VA may review up to three years of financial information when calculating assets. A&A enables a qualifying veteran to receive up to $2,296 if married ($1,937 if single) per month. A surviving spouse is eligible for $1,224 per month. A married couple may receive a maximum of $3,072 monthly if they are both veterans who require A&A. LIFE’s Vintage Guide to Housing & Services

HELPING SENIORS REMAIN AT

HOME WITH PACE PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) provides home and community-based care and services to people age 55 or older who meet level-of-care requirements, but wish to continue living at home. Care and services are approved through the PACE interdisciplinary team based on medical necessity and the individual’s goals. PACE provides coverage for primary and specialty healthcare, prescription drugs, transportation, home care, checkups, hospital visits and nursing home stays when necessary. Who Can Join PACE?

You can join PACE if: • You are age 55 or older; • You live in the service area of a PACE organization; • You meet level-of-care criteria from an assessment completed by a registered nurse; and • Receiving PACE services would enable you to live safely in the community. PACE Provides Comprehensive and Preventive Care

With PACE, you have a interdisciplinary team of experienced healthcare professionals overseeing your care. Since your team cares for a small number of people, they get to know you, your living situation and your care preferences. You and your family work with your team to set personal goals and develop and update your plan of care. When you enroll in PACE, you may be required to use a PACE-preferred physician. These physicians are best suited to help you make healthcare decisions. PACE organizations also support family members and other caregivers with training, support groups and respite care.

PACE Provides Services in the Community

PACE organizations provide care and services in the home, the community and at the PACE center. They have contracts with specialists and other providers in the community to ensure you get the care you need. PACE participants often get most of their care from staff employed by the PACE organization in the PACE center. PACE centers meet state health and federal safety requirements and include adult day health programs, primary care from physicians and nurses, medications, home care, activities and occupational and physical therapy services. PACE Provides Transportation

PACE organizations provide transportation to the PACE center for activities and medical appointments. PACE also transports to medically necessary appointments in the community on an as-needed basis. What You Pay Depends on Your Financial Situation

PACE uses Medicare and Medicaid funds to cover your care and services that have been approved by your team. You can have either Medicare or Medicaid or both to join PACE. If you have Medicaid, you will not have to pay a monthly premium for the PACE benefit. If you have Medicare, but don’t qualify for Medicaid, you will be charged a monthly fee to cover the PACE benefit and will continue paying the premium for your existing Medicare Part D coverage for prescriptions. In PACE, however, there is never a deductible or copayment for any drug, service or care approved by the PACE team. If you do not have Medicare or Medicaid, you can also pay for PACE privately. If you currently don’t have Medicaid, PACE staff can help you determine eligibility and complete the Medicaid application process.

PACE SERVICES MAY INCLUDE (BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO) THE FOLLOWING: Adult Day Health Services • Primary Care • Recreational Therapy • Physical Therapy • Occupational Therapy •Medical Specialty Services • Laboratory/X-ray Services • Emergency Services • Hospital Care • Home Care • Nutritional Counseling • Prescription Drugs • Social Services • Transportation • Meals

The ADvantage Program is a Medicaid waiver program that provides home and community-based services in lieu of nursing home care for those who qualify. The goal is to help at-risk seniors stay safely in their homes. The ADvantage Program In Oklahoma, the ADvantage Medicaid waiver program offers funding for a variety of in-home and community-based services for people age 65 or older with chronic illnesses and for adults age 21 or older with physical disabilities. To qualify, you must meet Medicaid waiver health and financial requirements. Currently, the monthly income limit is $2,382 per individual with no more than $2,000 in assets (not including the value of your home and car). You also must meet nursing home level-of-care guidelines to qualify for the program. Nursing home level of care means that without the services the waiver provides, you would be at risk of nursing home placement. Oklahoma’s Department of Human Services (OKDHS) determines if you meet the criteria and are eligible for the program. Although the ADvantage program doesn’t provide 24-hour care, for many people simply having help with daily tasks may be all they need to stay at home. All services provided by the ADvantage program are based on the individual’s needs. Along with case management, services may include: Personal care assistance with daily activities such as bathing, housekeeping, meals and shopping Home-delivered meals Durable medical equipment such as grab bars, shower chairs, hand-held showerheads and extended toilet seats Incontinence products Prescription drugs Home modifications, including installation of ramps or widening doorways Adult day health services ADvantage assisted living facilities (limited availability in the Tulsa area) Nursing services (918) 664-9000

hysical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapies P Respite care Hospice care

How the Program Works To apply for Oklahoma’s ADvantage program, call your local OKDHS office or the toll-free ADvantage line at (800) 435-4711. You can also call LIFE’s SeniorLine at (918) 664-9000, ext. 1184 for help applying for ADvantage. You will be sent a packet of forms requesting your financial information that must be returned within 10 days. An OKDHS nurse will then schedule a home visit to assess the level of care you need. OKDHS has up to 45 days to determine if you meet the financial and level-of-care criteria. Once you are approved for the ADvantage program, the first thing you will do is choose an ADvantagecertified agency as your case management provider. You will also choose an ADvantage-certified agency for any nursing or personal care services you may receive. If you don’t have a preference, an agency will be assigned to you. If you choose, you can hire and supervise your own worker to provide your personal care services. Your case manager will meet with you in your home. A team approach, comprised of your case manager, a nurse, other service providers and any friends or family you wish to include, is used to develop your personal care plan. Your team will meet with you to discuss your goals and create a plan of services. Your case manager arranges and coordinates your services and must contact you at least monthly to ensure services remain in place as long as needed. Your plan can be changed as your needs change. You can stay on the ADvantage program as long as your needs can be safely met at home and you continue to meet the program’s level-of-care and financial requirements.

CAREGIVING BASICS and the Stages Are you …

• Helping with shopping, cooking or running errands? • Making or receiving telephone calls on behalf of a loved one? • Providing transportation to medical appointments? • Assisting with paying bills or managing medications? • Providing personal care such as feeding, bathing, dressing or using the toilet? • Perceiving your loved one as dependent on you to make decisions for them? • Seeking and managing paid assistance and other services for your loved one? • Considering changing your work or living arrangements to allow you more time to care for a loved one? • Considering long-term care placement for a loved one?

… then you are a caregiver. (918) 664-9000

of Caregiving

You may not think of yourself as a caregiver. You may see what you’re doing as something natural: taking care of someone you love. Nevertheless, you are a caregiver. Not all of the stages below are experienced by every caregiver, and some caregivers flow in and out of stages.

STAGES OF CAREGIVING Stage 1 – Basic caregiving. This is when you’re “just

helping out.” You may be doing things like assisting with banking, paying bills, shopping and providing transportation. Stage 2 – Self-identifying as a caregiver. Helping

is now a necessity. You feel a responsibility to help on a daily basis. This may include assistance with personal grooming or light housekeeping in addition to the assistance provided in stage one. Stage 3 – Providing personal care. Providing personal hygiene assistance is the hallmark of stage three. The relationship at this point can become uncomfortable between caregiver and loved one. This may be the right time to bring in outside assistance with personal care. Stage 4 – Needing assistance. Is your caregiving role

starting to exhaust and consume you? If so, it is time to consider support services. Education, respite care and in-home services, as well as adult day health services, can help. Stage 5 – Exploring facility placement. This stage comes with the realization that there is a need for more services than can be provided at home. Stage five is about weighing options and learning what types of housing options meet the needs of your family and loved one. Stage 6 – Placement in a facility. The sixth stage involves placement of your loved one in some form of longterm care facility. The caregiver in this stage often takes on the role of advocate or care manager.

Caregiver Statistics: DID YOU KNOW? These statistics offer a glimpse into the world of caregiving. They can help caregivers see they are not alone and validate the time they spend doing the important tasks associated with helping another person. A caregiver is an unpaid individual (a spouse, partner, family member, friend or neighbor) involved in assisting another with activities of daily living and/or medical tasks.

Often, caregivers need to make some minor, but important changes like making time for their own doctor visits, embracing and maintaining friendships, and continuing a hobby or other passion. Self-care can be easily managed by increasing the amount of respite time – one of the most important tools for any careiver.

Research shows caregivers, both professional and volunteer, may experience a set of symptoms known as compassion fatigue. Compassion fatigue is characterized by difficulty handling stress, physical and emotional exhaustion and a change in the caregiver’s ability to feel empathy for their loved one. It may show up in a caregiver’s life as declining self-care, isolating from others, experiencing physical ailments or feeling the need to self-medicate. Recognizing compassion fatigue symptoms can put caregivers on the path to wellness and greater resiliency.

1.

Placing the needs of others ahead of your own

2.

Lacking personal boundaries or unidentified boundaries

There are specific symptoms associated with compassion fatigue. Each symptom on its own may not indicate a problem, but the more symptoms identified, the higher the probability that compassion fatigue has set in. Symptoms include: Bottled up emotions Isolation from others Sadness and apathy Excessive complaining Impulse to rescue anyone in need eoccurring nightmares R or flashbacks ersistent physical P ailments ifficulty concentrating D or mental tiredness

Heightened anxiety Accident prone Hypersensitivity to emotional experiences I mpaired ability to make decisions iminished sense of D enjoyment, especially of things that previously brought joy I ncreased use of alcohol or drugs

3.

Inability to communicate needs, or in some cases, identify needs

4.

Lacking healthy coping skills

Consider the following steps if you are at risk for compassion fatigue: Start with yourself. Self-care and self-compassion are not greedy or selfish. Self-care is the foundation of being a caregiver.

Do something fun every day. This is about maintaining friendships and activities that are enjoyable and emotionally rewarding.

Take a break from caregiving. Use respite. Ask a friend or family member to spend some time with your loved one. Most communities have home health companies that offer respite in the home for an hourly fee. Some communities also have adult day health centers that can help during the day for an affordable price. Some families use assisted living or nursing facilities for short-term stays. See Respite: A Caregiving Necessity on page 36.

Find and attend a support group. Peer support for family caregivers can be both enlightening and encouraging.

Prioritize. Evaluate what is on your plate, and let some of it go if you can.

Exercise and eat well. This one may sound like a no-brainer, but when a caregiver is experiencing compassion fatigue it can feel difficult to take proper care of both yourself and the person you care for. Get professional help if needed. Locally, there are many therapists and counselors that specialize in helping caregivers.

“There are only four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.” – Rosalynn Carter (918) 664-9000

Respite: A Caregiving Necessity

Caregiving is a challenging job, and all caregivers need a break. Respite is the term used when someone else helps care for a loved one temporarily. Respite may last a few hours, a couple of days or even longer.

The amount of respite depends on the family’s needs and resources. Respite care can be provided in the family home, the home of a friend or relative, an adult day center, assisted living, memory care center or nursing facility. Respite can be used for many things such as visiting family or friends, running errands, tending to healthcare needs, going to a movie, enjoying a hobby or even taking a vacation. Respite care is not a luxury. It is a necessity for both the caregiver and their loved one. “The more you are a caregiver,” says Donna Schempp, LCSW and program director for the Family Caregiver Alliance, “the more isolated you get and the more your world narrows. Respite helps because it distracts you from what you are doing every day. It gives you time to take a deep breath and think of other things.” The benefits of respite are many and include reducing stress on the family and improving caregiving. The benefits of respite are greater if started early in the caregiving journey. Respite can help the caregiver by allowing him/her some muchneeded rest and relaxation. The

36

care recipient benefits from new activities and developing or renewing relationships with other people. “Taking respite is something you do for the care receiver so you can be a better caregiver,” Schempp said. “It also helps the person being cared for. Having someone else come in and care for a person can be a breath of fresh air for the care recipient and bring a new perspective.” Respite is available in many different forms. In Oklahoma, one of the easiest and most affordable options is adult day health services. Facilities such as residential care homes and assisted living facilities may provide respite for an extended period of time. There are usually length-of-stay requirements for this type of respite, and each facility has its own policies. Often other family members can help by taking over caregiving duties for a period of time. Home health agencies are also available to provide respite. How does a caregiver pay for respite? In Oklahoma, respite providers may accept some or all of the following pay options: private pay, Veteran’s Administration, respite vouchers or long-term care insurance.

LIFE’s Vintage Guide to Housing & Services

Respite Vouchers Respite vouchers pay for caregivers to hire another person to temporarily care for their loved ones when they need a break. People in Tulsa, Creek and Osage counties can apply for the funds through the INCOG Area Agency on Aging, (800) 211-2116 toll-free, and Oxford Health Care, (800) 316-2222 toll-free. Statewide vouchers are available through the local Area Agency on Aging. Call (800) 211-2116 toll-free to find the agency serving your county. See Area Agencies on Aging on page 207. The voucher process includes an assessment to determine needs and identify additional opportunities for helping the caregiver. The process can take several weeks, and there may be a waiting list. Vouchers can be used for adult day services or to pay someone to come into your home to care for your loved one. There is no income requirement to receive this service. Call LIFE’s SeniorLine at (918) 664-9000, ext. 1184 to learn about additional programs that may help fund respite. www.LIFEseniorservices.org


Long-Distance CAREGIVING

The struggle to balance your loved one’s desire to be independent with the expectation that they are safe, comfortable and have their needs met is at the core of caregiving. Achieving this balance can be even more difficult when you live some distance away. If you live more than one hour away from your loved one, then you are considered a long-distance caregiver. Identify the Need for Help Watch for signs that your loved one is having difficulty managing daily tasks. Identify what type of help they may need to remain independent at home for as long as possible. When you visit your loved one, watch for the following: • Is there food in the refrigerator that is fresh and healthy to eat? Check expiration dates. Are they eating regular meals? • Has the condition of the home – inside or outside – deteriorated? Is the yard maintained? • Are there piles of unopened mail? Have bills been paid regularly and on time? • Do they have regular visits from friends or family? • How is their grooming and personal appearance? • Are they able to drive safely? See Driving Abilities on page 10 for more information. • See Does My Loved One Need Help? on page 11 for more signs your loved one may need assistance. Build a List of Support Contacts If you find that the needs of your loved one outweigh your ability to help from afar, there are nonprofit agencies, government programs and home (918) 664-9000

health agencies that can help. Building a list of resources and contact people can help you coordinate care and services for your loved one from a distance. • Case managers – Case managers can help navigate home and community-based services that may enable an older adult or person with disabilities to remain independent. A case manager can be your eyes and ears, help with appointments, arrange services (e.g., homedelivered meals, adult day health services and transportation) and keep you informed about changes in your loved one’s health or the services that are needed.

continued LIFE’s Vintage Guide to Housing & Services

37


• Family, friends and neighbors – Make a list of their phone numbers, email and mailing addresses. Ask them to stop by your loved one’s home for regular visits. Check in with them to find out how your loved one is doing. Inquire about recommendations for a reliable handyman to take responsibility for yardwork and basic home repairs. • Personal physicians – Keep in contact with your loved one’s doctors. A HIPAA release, signed by the patient, will allow you and their physicians to discuss any concerns about their mental or physical well-being. • Community groups – Check with their church or social groups to encourage regular visits, an occasional meal or social activity. • Home health services – You can hire a home health agency to help with bathing, personal care, activities, meal preparation and medication management. Important Documents and Information Having legal, medical and insurance documents can help a caregiver near or far. These documents may include: • Medical history • HIPAA release

The struggle to balance your loved one’s desire to be independent with the expectation that they are safe, comfortable and have their needs met is at the core of caregiving. Achieving this balance can be even more difficult when you live some distance away. • Insurance policies • Doctors and specialists with phone numbers and addresses • List of medications, dosages, corresponding conditions, pharmacy name and phone number • Hospital preferences • Will • Durable powers of attorney • Advance directive • List of passwords and login information for managing finances

Make the Most of Your Visits Few long-distance caregivers are able to spend as much time with their loved one as they would like. The key is to use your time effectively: • Make appointments with your loved one’s physician, lawyer and financial advisor during your visit to encourage planning or decisionmaking. • Meet with neighbors, friends, property managers and relatives to hear how they think your loved one is doing. Ask if they have observed any behavioral changes, health problems or safety issues. • Take time to connect with your loved one by talking, listening to music, going for a walk or participating in activities that you both enjoy. Caring for a Loved One in a Long-Term Care Facility If your loved one lives in an assisted living or nursing care facility, it is important to maintain ongoing communication with the care staff and friends who visit regularly. • Work with the managing nurse and physician. Agree on a time when you can call to get updates on your loved one’s condition and progress, and identify situations where you want to be notified immediately. • Call family, friends or other regular visitors and ask for their observations. • When you visit, take time to develop a friendly, personal relationship with the staff members who have primary responsibility for your loved one’s care. This will help ensure that your loved one is getting proper attention and care. • Get to know the long-term care ombudsman assigned to the facility. • Consider placing a security camera in your loved one’s room so you can check on them periodically.

LEGAL MATTERS AND OLDER ADULTS

Almost everyone would prefer to have a say in who is given the authority to manage their affairs when they can no longer make those decisions on their own. Likewise, most people want to decide for themselves how their estate and personal items will be distributed after their death. Pre-planning ensures your affairs are handled in the manner you desire and is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your family and friends. Here are explanations of some crucial planning documents.

ADVANCE DIRECTIVE FOR HEALTHCARE The advance directive for healthcare, or living will, is a written, legal document that allows individuals, age 18 or older and of sound mind, to inform physicians and others of their wishes to: • Receive, decline or withdraw life-sustaining medical care. • Appoint a healthcare proxy to make medical decisions when they are no longer able. • Donate specified organs or the entire body for transplant or research. The advance directive is only used if your physician and

(918) 664-9000

another doctor both determine you are no longer able to make medical decisions. Once your advance directive is completed, copies should be given to your family, physician, attorney, healthcare proxy and alternate healthcare proxy. It is also recommended that you keep a copy in your car and at home in case of a medical emergency. If you live in an assisted living facility or nursing home, a copy should be included in your resident file. Your advance directive should be reviewed every few years, especially after a major, lifechanging event. The advance directive can be revoked at any time and in any manner that indicates your intention to revoke. Completing a new advance directive automatically revokes the old one. All relevant parties should have a copy of the new advance directive. An Oklahoma Advance Directive for Health Care can be downloaded free at the Oklahoma Department of Health website, the Oklahoma Bar Association website, and www.legalaidok.org.

PSYCHIATRIC ADVANCE DIRECTIVE A Psychiatric Advance Directive allows a person of sound mind to inform mental health providers about psychiatric treatment in the event the person is incapable of making or communicating these instructions. The PAD can include instructions about psychiatric medications and hospitalization. You may also appoint an “agent” to instruct mental health professionals on your behalf. A PAD comes into effect once two mental health providers declare a person not competent to make treatment decisions. A PAD can be superseded by an advance directive for healthcare or a durable power of attorney if there is a conflict. Consult a lawyer to ensure all your wishes will be followed.

POWER OF ATTORNEY, DURABLE AND NON-DURABLE A power of attorney gives another person the authority to make decisions on your behalf. Typically, a person names a trusted family member or friend as their POA. There are two types of POA: durable and non-durable. Both allow the person the exact same authority while you – the creator – are well and of sound mind and body. But when you are not well and are unable to make decisions for yourself, the durable power of attorney remains active, but the non-durable power of attorney becomes inactive. The DPOA is an inexpensive alternative to a courtsupervised guardianship or conservatorship, which is necessary when a person becomes incapacitated without pre-planning. While there is a uniform statutory form for a durable power of attorney, it is strongly advised to consult an attorney to draft a DPOA. If a person doesn’t have a DPOA, and it is determined that the individual is incapacitated, the court will appoint a guardian – usually an adult child, spouse, sibling or other relative of the individual (now known as the ward) or an attorney, public guardian or bank – to take care of the person or their property. The court will tailor the powers of the guardian to the needs of the ward. General guardianship gives the guardian almost complete power over the ward’s property and/or person. Limited guardianship gives the guardian only the powers specified by the court,

42

LIFE’s Vintage Guide to Housing & Services

and the ward keeps power to manage the other areas. Special guardianship is a temporary, limited guardianship during an emergency.

WILL A will is a legal document that communicates how a person wishes personal assets and property to be distributed after their death. You must be age 18 or older and of sound mind to craft a will. When a person dies without a valid will, their property is distributed through probate according to state laws, rather than a person’s wishes. These laws only allow distribution of property to family, as strictly outlined by the law. When you plan ahead and create a valid will, you may give your property to anyone you please after your death. A will can be easily changed or revoked. A will that is entirely handwritten, dated and signed in the creator’s own handwriting and contains no typed or printed portion is valid in Oklahoma. It is highly recommended, however, that you have an attorney draft your will. A copy should be filed with the probate division of your county courthouse.

TRUST A trust is a written document that manages your property while you are living and distributes the property according to your wishes after your death. Using a trust generally allows for easier and quicker distribution of your property and avoids probate. The downside to a trust is that it is generally more expensive than a will. A trust should be created with the help of a reliable attorney.

PAYABLE ON DEATH These bank accounts offer one of the easiest ways to keep money out of probate. To implement a payableon-death provision, a bank-provided form must be completed, naming the person you want to inherit the account. As long as you are alive, the person has no rights to the account. After your death, the beneficiary must show proof of your death and their identity to collect any funds in the account.

THE CONSEQUENCES

T

O F ELDER AB US E

he Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines elder abuse as an intentional act – or failure to act – by a caregiver or another trusted person that causes or creates a risk of harm to an older adult. The CDC reports that each year hundreds of thousands of adults age 60 and older are abused, neglected or financially exploited. Older adults may be more vulnerable to abuse or neglect due to social isolation, physical limitations, medical conditions, poor eyesight or hearing, or a cognitive impairment such as depression or dementia.

WHAT DOES ABUSE AND NEGLECT LOOK LIKE? According to the National Council on Aging, elder abuse can consist of any of the following: hysical abuse – inflicting physical pain or injury P through actions like hitting, pushing and slapping. Sexual abuse – touching, fondling or any sexual activity with an older adult who is unable to understand, unwilling to consent or feels threatened or physically forced. motional abuse – psychological abuse that E includes verbal assaults, threats of abuse, harassment or intimidation. Keeping an older adult from seeing close friends and relatives is another form of emotional abuse. Confinement – restraining or isolating an older adult, other than for medical reasons. Passive neglect – the failure of a caregiver, family member or institution to provide an older adult with life’s basic necessities, including, but not limited to, food, clothing, shelter or medical care. Characterized by soiled clothing, inappropriate clothing for the season, dirty or malnourished appearance or untreated physical conditions. Willful deprivation – denying an older adult medication, medical care, shelter, food, therapeutic devices, or other physical assistance, as well as exposing that person to the risk of physical, mental or emotional harm. (918) 664-9000

inancial exploitation – misuse or withholding of F an older adult’s resources by another. Abandonment – leaving a senior alone without planning for their care. WHERE DOES ABUSE HAPPEN AND WHO ARE THE ABUSERS? Elder abuse tends to take place in the older adult’s home or institutional settings such as long-term care facilities. In almost 60% of elder abuse and neglect incidents with a known perpetrator, the perpetrator is a family member. Two-thirds of perpetrators are adult children or spouses. HOW DO I REPORT ELDER ABUSE OR NEGLECT? The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women and the National Clearinghouse for Abuse in Later Life reports that for every case of elder abuse that comes to the attention of a responsible agency, another 23 cases never come to light. In Oklahoma, all individuals are required to report elder abuse and neglect situations. If an older adult is in life-threatening danger, call 911. If you are concerned or suspect an older adult is being mistreated, you can contact the 24-hour statewide abuse hotline at (800) 522-3511toll-free or Oklahoma Department of Human Services Adult Protective Services at (800) 734-7516 toll-free. All reports are confidential. For more on Abuse Information and Reporting, see page 194. THE CONSEQUENCES OF ELDER ABUSE The trauma of elder abuse may result in health issues like deterioration in health, hospitalization and increased mortality, clinical issues like depression and suicide, social issues like disrupted relationships, and financial loss, all leading to diminished independence and quality of life.

Dementia

Memory often changes with age, but memory loss that disrupts daily life is not a typical part of aging. Such memory loss may be a symptom of any number of types of dementia. A general umbrella term, dementia describes a group of symptoms that affect intellectual and social abilities such as memory and/or cognitive ability severely enough to interfere with daily functioning. Some causes of dementia are treatable and even reversible.

DEMENTIA FACTS

Dementia is considered a late-life disease because it tends to develop mostly in older adults; however, it is increasingly being diagnosed in adults age 50 or younger. More than 6 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia. One in nine people age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s dementia. Almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer’s are women. The number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s is growing. It’s projected that by 2050, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s disease may grow to 13.8 million. What Causes Dementia? Because dementia is a set of symptoms, not the root disease, it can be caused by: • Diseases that cause degeneration or loss of nerve cells in the brain such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases. • Diseases that affect blood vessels such as a stroke, which can cause a disorder known as multi-infarct dementia. • Toxic reactions from excessive alcohol or drug use. • Nutritional deficiencies like vitamin B12 (which can be reversed if caught early) and folate deficiency. • Infections that affect the brain and spinal cord such as AIDS Dementia Complex and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. • Certain types of hydrocephalus, an accumulation of fluid in the brain that can

44

LIFE’s Vintage Guide to Housing & Services

result from developmental abnormalities, infection, injury or brain tumors. • Head injury – either a single, severe head injury or chronic smaller injuries. • Kidney, liver and lung diseases.

What are the Symptoms and Progression of Dementia? Dementia progresses gradually. In the later stages, the person may not know what day of the week, month or year it is, where they are and might not be able to identify the people around them. Dementia symptoms vary depending on the cause, but common signs and symptoms include: • Memory loss • Difficulty communicating • Inability to learn or remember new information • Difficulty with planning and organizing • Difficulty with coordination and motor functions • Personality changes • Inability to reason • Inappropriate behavior • Paranoia • Agitation • Hallucinations When to See a Doctor Don’t delay seeing a doctor if you or a loved one experience memory loss or other dementia symptoms. Often, symptoms can be attributed to a treatable medical condition such as urinary tract infections or even be a side effect of certain medications. Also, there are medications that can treat symptoms and help slow the progression of dementia, especially when treatment begins early. For more information, see Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Support on page 196. Sources: www.mayoclinic.com and www.alz.org www.LIFEseniorservices.org


Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease According to the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time. Alzheimer’s accounts for 60% to 80% of dementia cases.

Memory loss that disrupts daily life. Especially in the early stages, common signs include forgetting recently learned information, forgetting important dates or events, asking for the same information over and over, and/or relying heavily on family members or memory aids.

Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships. For some, visual comprehension issues may develop. They may begin to have difficulty judging distance or direction when driving, catching a ball or even picking something up. In terms of perception, they may pass a mirror and not recognize their own image, thinking it is someone else.

Decreased or poor judgment. People with Alzheimer’s disease may experience changes in judgment or the ability to make decisions. They may use poor judgment when dealing with finances such as giving large amounts of money to telemarketers. They may pay less attention to bathing or grooming.

Challenges in planning, problemsolving and concentration. Some people may experience changes in their ability to develop and follow a plan or work with numbers. Following familiar recipes, keeping track of monthly bills and maintaining concentration may become difficult.

Withdrawal from work or social activities. Someone who has Alzheimer’s may start to remove themselves from hobbies, social activities, work projects or sports. They may have trouble keeping up with a favorite sports team or remembering how to complete a favorite hobby. They may also avoid being social because of the changes they have experienced.

NOT JUST FOR END OF LIFE alliative care is a unique approach to improving life and comfort during a serious health situation. With palliative care, the individual prioritizes the care plan by deciding what values are important to them – comfort, cure, communication, quality of life, etc. It has also been described as supportive care because it targets relief of physical, social, psychological and spiritual distress. Palliative care is a medical specialty backed by an interdisciplinary team involved in caring for a person facing a serious, possibly life-threatening illness. The palliative care team handles complex pain issues, coordinates intensive/sensitive communication exchanges and helps clarify the goals of care. Depending on the individual’s needs and desires, palliative care may include home help, transportation, emotional and spiritual support, individual and family education, decision making, psychological support and respite care for caregivers. Palliative care is compatible with all other medical treatments, and bringing in a palliative care team does not mean giving up on a cure. Palliative care is not the same as hospice, but can be brought in for pain control at the end of life. Palliative care is holistic, looking at the challenges the disease imposes on all aspects of life – emotional, physical and practical. Some people want to focus everything on fighting for a cure, and they don’t care about their current quality of life or the pain they have to endure. Others value time with family and friends and want pain managed effectively. The recipient of the care sets the priorities. However, it’s not always an either/or choice. In a study of lung cancer patients, those receiving palliative care not only experienced improved quality of life, but on average lived longer.

philosophies. In the curative model, the focus is on the body and its parts and symptoms. The care recipient’s body is differentiated from the mind, and the primary goal is finding a cure. The palliative care model values the patient’s entire experience. The person is viewed as a unique, complex being with physical, emotional, social and spiritual dimensions. Concerns of the individual and their family are considered, and relief of suffering is the ultimate goal. People receiving palliative care have been shown to enjoy a higher quality of life with less depression. Lowering pain and discomfort improves outcomes and gives both care recipients and their families a boost. The palliative care team typically includes a doctor, nurse and social worker, depending on the individual’s desires and needs. Palliative care should be considered whenever a complex medical condition is causing frequent or ongoing hospitalizations, there are issues with symptom control, the treatments are burdensome or multiple care teams create fragmented communications.

While cure and palliative care teams can and do work effectively to treat individuals at the same time, they have different approaches and different For more information, ask your physician for a referral or visit www.getpalliativecare.org to learn more.

UNDERSTANDING

HOSPICE CARE

The word “hospice” is sometimes met with apprehension. This reaction may stem from the misconception that accepting hospice care means giving up hope. Fortunately, this is far from the truth. Hospice services can be a tremendous source of support and comfort and are focused on improving the quality of life both for the person with an illness and their family. WHAT IS HOSPICE? Hospice care is considered the model for quality, compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness with a prognosis of six months or less. However, care does not necessarily end after six months. Hospice takes a team-oriented approach to providing expert medical care, pain and symptom management, and emotional and spiritual support tailored to the person’s needs and wishes. Support is also provided to the individual’s family. The focus of hospice is founded on the belief that each person has the right to die pain-free, with dignity and at peace, and that their loved ones should receive the support necessary to allow them to do so. Hospice focuses on quality of life, not curing. HOW DOES HOSPICE WORK? Generally, hospice is recommended when the person is expected to live six months or less. A referral to a hospice provider from the individual’s physician is required to begin care. Except for restrictions set by an insurance provider, the selection of a hospice service provider is a personal choice. continued

(918) 664-9000

LIFE’s Vintage Guide to Housing & Services

47


Once the referral is received, hospice staff will visit with the individual and family to assess their overall needs and wishes. Hospice consists of an interdisciplinary care team that includes the individual and the primary caregiver, as well as physicians, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains, various therapists and trained volunteers. The care team works together to create a care plan specifically tailored to meet the needs and desires of the individual and the family. Among its major responsibilities, the hospice care team: anages the person’s pain and symptoms – M referred to as palliative care Provides emotional support Provides needed medications, medical supplies and equipment related to managing the life-limiting illness Inquires about end-of-life wishes, advanced directives and a do not resuscitate (DNR) order Coaches loved ones on how to care for the person Delivers special services like speech, occupational and physical therapies as needed Makes short-term inpatient care available when pain or symptoms become too difficult to manage at home or the caregiver needs respite Provides grief support for surviving loved ones and friends As you consider beginning hospice care, it is also a good idea to consider the person’s endof-life wishes and to choose a funeral, burial or cremation provider. You’ll also need to include this information in your hospice care plan. For a list of

48

LIFE’s Vintage Guide to Housing & Services

funeral, burial and cremation providers serving the Tulsa area, see page 189. WHAT IS A DO NOT RESUSCITATE (DNR) ORDER? A DNR is a medical order that allows individuals to state their desire not to be resuscitated in the event that they stop breathing or their heart stops. It is usually made by the individual or their healthcare proxy. This gives medical personnel and family members clear instructions about how such situations should be handled so that the person’s wishes can be respected. The individual or their healthcare proxy can change or revoke an advanced directive or DNR at any time by simply informing the physician or hospice staff. WHERE ARE HOSPICE SERVICES PROVIDED? Hospice services most often are provided in the recipient’s own home, but can also be provided in a long-term care or assisted living facility, a family member’s home, or special end-of-life care facility. For a list of hospice care agencies, see page 164. For a hospice care agency evaluation checklist, see page 59. HOW IS HOSPICE PAID FOR? In Oklahoma, besides private pay, hospice care can also be paid for by Medicare (Part A), the Veterans Administration, most private health insurance plans or the ADvantage program. If none of these payment sources are available to the patient, some hospices do provide courtesy care. Ask your healthcare provider or resource counselor which hospices provide courtesy care. www.LIFEseniorservices.org


ADULT DAY HEALTH SERVICES:

How to Choose a Quality Program Adult day health services help older adults retain their independence and quality of life in a community-based group setting, while their family caregivers benefit from a much-needed break and can continue to work or attend to personal matters. For many individuals and families, daytime care is a welcome alternative to costly in-home or residential care. A well-managed program focuses on enriching the participants’ lives by building upon individual interests and abilities,and providing opportunities for socialization, stimulating activities and new friendships.

Take the following steps to select the adult day health program that is right for your family. Step 1: Determine Your Needs Make a list of the features and services that are important to you and your loved one. Specific services that may be important:

YES

YES

NO

Assistance with eating, walking, transferring and/or using the toilet

A safe, secure environment

Nursing services – medication management, breathing treatments, insulin injections, etc.

Fun, therapeutic activities

NO

New learning opportunities Nutritious meals and snacks

Physical, speech or occupational therapies Health monitoring – blood pressure, blood sugar, etc.

Special diets

Personal care – bathing, shaving, hair care, incontinence care, foot care, etc.

Exercise Mental stimulation Caregiver support and education

Step 2: Begin the Search To begin your search, review the list of Tulsa-area providers beginning on page 138 or a statewide list at www.ok.gov/health. Once you have a list of adult day health centers in your area, it is recommended that you visit each center’s website or call and request a flier or brochure. The next step in your search will be to compile questions to ask when you visit the centers you are considering. Here are some suggested questions to get you started: Is the center a nonprofit or for-profit organization? Who is the owner or sponsoring agency of the center? How many years has the center been in operation? Is the center licensed by the Oklahoma State Department of Health?

(918) 664-9000

LIFE’s Vintage Guide to Housing & Services

49


Is the center nationally accredited by CARF (Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities)? What are the days and hours of operation? Is transportation assistance available? Are health services available (e.g., nursing care, medication management and physical, occupational or speech therapies)? What is the cost (hourly or daily rates)? Are there additional charges? Is financial assistance available? Are there any restrictions to enrollment (e.g., age, health conditions, limited mobility, memory loss, incontinence)? Do they offer personal care (e.g., assisted showers, shaving, hair care, foot care, incontinence care)? Does the center offer different levels of care? Are nutritious meals provided? Can they accommodate special dietary needs? What are the staff credentials? What is the staff-to-participant ratio? What kind of activities do they offer? Are there both group and individual activities? Is the location convenient to either home or work?

Step 3: Pay a Visit Make an appointment to meet with the staff and tour the centers on your list. Spend some time in the center to get a feel for the people and the program. Consider staying for lunch to evaluate the food and staff/participant interaction. Did you feel welcome? Did someone spend time finding out what you and your loved one want and need? Did someone clearly explain what services and activities the center provides? Did they present information about staffing, program procedures and costs? Is the center clean, pleasant and odor free? Is the center compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act? Is the furniture sturdy and comfortable? Is there a quiet place within the program area? Did you see cheerful faces on staff members and participants? Do they have volunteers who help? Are participants involved in planning activities or making suggestions? What kind of security features are in place? What were participants doing during your visit? Did they appear happy and engaged?

Step 4: Check References Talk to two or three people who have used the centers you are considering. Ask for their opinion. Check online reviews. Step 5: What to Expect It’s important to remember that a change in routine can be challenging for you and your loved one. It may take several days or longer to adjust to a new routine and setting. Knowing what to expect is important for both of you. If you run into any difficulty or have concerns during this transition, ask staff for their suggestions and support. Keep in mind that this transition period is temporary; your loved one will soon enjoy and look forward to their days at the center.

Independent Living

Independent Living

Independent living communities are for older adults who are generally able to care for themselves. Some of the independent living options listed in this section are apartment complexes that have senior-friendly amenities, but may not be exclusively for older adults. The utilities column in this section refers to basic utilities, including gas, electric, water, sewer and trash services. Some properties may also consider services such as telephone, internet and/or cable TV in their utilities package. Contact the community’s leasing office for details about leasing requirements, payment options, services and amenities. For information on EMSA service memberships, see page 222. To help determine if an independent living community meets your specific needs, use the Independent Living Evaluation Checklist on page 53. LIFE leaves denote independent housing options offered by LIFE’s Vintage Housing.

It’s important to create a plan. Here are some helpful tips on how to navigate the waters of downsizing.

5 TIPS

To Formulate An Effective Downsizing Plan (918) 664-9000

1. Organize Your Goals in a Notebook – Buy a notebook to outline your plan and write down your goals for downsizing. Keep it with you and jot things down as you think of them. You can set a timeline and make lists. If a question occurs to you, write it down and follow up later.

of rooms you’d like to focus on first. You get to choose.

2. Be Clear About the End Result – Are you downsizing to prepare for a move or are you getting rid of things you don’t need?

5. It's OK to Change Your Mind – Remember, you can always change your mind about some items on your plan. As you go through your home, you may find a new use for something that’s been lying hidden in the back of a cabinet.

3. Organize Room By Room – Choose which rooms or even areas

4. Break Down Your Goals – Use “SMART” goals: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and with a time frame that’s doable. It can be helpful to break the plan down into weeks.

For details about admission requirements, payment options, services and amenities, call or visit the assisted living community directly. For information on EMSA service memberships, see page 222. To help determine if an assisted living community meets your needs, use the Assisted Living Community Evaluation Checklist on page 55. Veterans may qualify for Aid & Attendance financial assistance from the Department of Veterans Affairs. For more information on Aid & Attendance, as well as general eligibility requirements for veterans pension benefits, see VA Healthcare Benefits on page 28. ssisted living centers in Oklahoma are licensed under the Continuum of Care and Assisted Living Act 63 O.S., Section 1-890.1 et A seq., and the Continuum of Care Assisted Living Rules, OAC 310:663.

Nursing Facilities

Nursing Facilities

A nursing home or facility provides 24-hour care and related services for residents who require medical or nursing care. Services and amenities often include nursing care and treatments, medication administration and supervision, memory care and access to rehabilitation or restorative therapies. Other services and amenities such as ventilator care, on-site health services, wellness programs, transportation, assistance with shopping/errands, hair salon, cable TV and EMSA memberships may also be available. For information on EMSA service memberships, see page 222. To help determine if a nursing facility meets your needs, use the Skilled Nursing Care Evaluation Checklist on page 57. Some facilities may offer memory care. A memory care environment is designed for individuals with a level of cognitive impairment that makes it unsafe for them to continue living at home. A facility offering memory care may or may not adhere to Oklahoma’s Alzheimer’s Disease Special Care Disclosure Act.

2021 - 2022 Adult Day Health Services

Adult Day Health Services Adult day health centers provide a coordinated program of professional and compassionate services for adults in a community-based group setting. A well-run adult day health program focuses on enriching participants’ lives by building on their individual skills, knowledge, abilities and strengths. In addition to social and recreational services, some adult day health centers provide health support services such as blood pressure monitoring, foot care, therapies, specialized Alzheimer’s/dementia care and assistance with personal care such as assisted showers and incontinence. These programs also provide caregivers a much-needed break to attend to personal needs, run errands, continue working or rest. Days and hours of operation, scope of services, cost and payment options vary. For more information, contact the adult day health center directly. To help determine if an adult day health program meets your needs, read the Adult Day Health Services: Person-Centered Daytime Care for Older Adults and Adult Day Health Services: How to Choose a Quality Program articles starting on pages 27, 49. Veterans may qualify for Aid & Attendance financial assistance from the Department of Veterans. For more information on Aid & Attendance, as well as general eligibility requirements for veterans pension benefits, see VA Healthcare Benefits on page 28. LIFE leaves denote adult day health options offered by LIFE Senior Services.

2021 - 2022 Home Health Agencies

Home Health Agencies Home health and home care agencies encompass a wide range of health and supportive services delivered in a person’s home. Home health is appropriate when a person prefers to stay at home, but needs ongoing or intermittent care or assistance that cannot easily or effectively be provided solely by family and friends. Home health services can help a person continue recovery after a hospital stay and are an integral part of rehabilitation and long-term care in the home. Home healthcare can consist of skilled care, personal care and companion care. For some, home health services are an alternative to institutional care. To help determine if a home health agency meets your needs, use the Home Health Agency Evaluation Checklist on page 51. It is important to note that home health agencies usually serve a specific geographical area defined by a service mile radius or by county. Agencies with multiple offices may cover a larger area. For information on service areas, services and more, contact the agency directly. Veterans may qualify for Aid & Attendance financial assistance from the Department of Veterans Affairs. For more information on Aid & Attendance, as well as general eligibility requirements for veterans pension benefits, see VA Healthcare Benefits on page 28. ome health agencies in Oklahoma are licensed under the Home Care Act, Title 63 of the Oklahoma Statutes and the rules H for Home Care Agencies. State licensure is required. The exception to Oklahoma’s licensing requirements include, but are not limited to: 1) a person acting alone who provides services in the home of a relative, neighbor or friend; 2) a person who provides housekeeping/maid services only; 3) a nurse service or home aide service conducted by and for any religious denomination.

Hospice Care Agencies

Hospice Care Agencies

Hospice programs provide supportive services and palliative care to individuals with a terminal diagnosis. The focus of hospice care is on meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the individual and their family, while fostering the highest quality of life possible. To learn more about hospice care, see the Understanding Hospice Care article on page 47. To help determine if a hospice care agency meets your needs, use the Hospice Care Agency Evaluation Checklist on page 59. Hospice services are covered under Medicare (Part A), by the Veterans Administration and most private health insurance plans. While Oklahoma’s ADvantage Medicaid Waiver program does cover hospice care, Oklahoma’s traditional Medicaid program, also called SoonerCare, does not. It is important to note that hospice agencies usually serve a specific geographical area defined by a service mile radius or by county. Agencies with multiple offices may cover a larger area. For information on service areas, services and more, contact the agency directly. Veterans may qualify for Aid & Attendance financial assistance from the Department of Veterans Affairs. For more information on Aid & Attendance, as well as general eligibility requirements for veterans pension benefits, see VA Healthcare Benefits on page 28. Hospice programs in Oklahoma are licensed under the Hospice Licensing Act, 63 O.S., Section 1-860.1 et seq., and the

Hospice Regulations, OAC 310:661. State licensure is required. Medicare certification is optional.

THINGS TO DO WHEN A LOVED ONE DIES

1. Contact funeral home and begin making arrangements. 2. Contact family and friends. Let close family members help and consider using Facebook to get the news out quickly. Follow-up with a post about finalized funeral arrangements. 3. Contact your loved one’s physicians, church and/ or religious leaders; employer; fraternal, civic, veterans and other organizations your loved one attended; bank, attorney, accountant and executor of the estate.

AFTER THE FUNERAL SERVICES

Hospice Care Agencies

FIRST THINGS TO DO AFTER THE DEATH OF A LOVED ONE

1. Arrange to get multiple copies of the death certificate from the funeral director. 2. Get copies of the death certificate to Medicare, Social Security, life insurance companies and investment companies. 3. Work with the executor of the estate to gather birth certificate, marriage and/or divorce certificates, Social Security card, citizenship papers, military discharge papers, life insurance documents and bank books.

All of this takes time, but don’t get overwhelmed by rushing. Take time to gather with family and friends; let yourself grieve.

ENJOY LIFE VOLUNTEER AT LIFE SENIOR SERVICES

It’s been written that it takes a village to raise a child, but it takes volunteers to raise a community. Volunteering is an area where everyone in a community can find a place to give of their time and talents. Those talents may be something learned or abilities such as listening to someone, building a ramp, planting a garden or helping a nonprofit raise needed funds to fulfill a mission. Research shows that volunteering can benefit an individual in seven areas. It provides more happiness, reduces stress, relieves pain (both physical and emotional), increases the lifespan, lowers blood pressure, reduces mild depression and benefits your career if you’re still working. LIFE Senior Services is advancing its volunteer opportunities this summer. The people behind RSVP, the Retired Senior Volunteer Program, with its 50-year history in Tulsa, became part of LIFE Senior Services on July 1, 2021. LIFE is excited to continue their mission of placing volunteers in fulfilling opportunities across our community. Volunteer Manager Heidi Braver will lead the expanded volunteer program at LIFE. Heidi has a long history of successful volunteer management,

LIFE has three adult day centers in Tulsa. Each center has volunteer opportunities like playing games, teaching a group in art, crocheting or leading a book club. A new program called LIFE University is designed for our participants with special needs. We are looking for volunteers, hopefully retired teachers, to assist in developing a third-grade curriculum to be taught daily from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at our Broken Arrow location.

most recently serving as director of the volunteer experience at Tulsa Area United Way. LIFE is delighted she will help shape the future of volunteer programs at LIFE Senior Services. Volunteer opportunities can be found at LIFE Senior Services through the newly combined programs. While COVID-19 has made changes in how and where we may use volunteers, volunteering is once again becoming a great part of the organization. LIFE is always searching for individuals, and hopefully soon groups, to help with many of our programs.

Another volunteer opportunity is within our Club LIFE program. This program is for individuals with early memory loss. This program has openings for volunteers to help in areas of socialization, physical exercise and other activities to improve brain function and memory enhancement. Other programs using volunteers are the Medicare Assistance Program (MAP), Tax Assistance Program (TAP), the Holiday Project and special events throughout the year.
